A Tuscan Cooking Lesson
Fabrizio was suggested to us by the owners of the villa we had rented while in Tuscany. If you are looking for a real experience of true Tuscan cuisine learning from the basic fundamentals that, for me have gotten lost in our western rush to get food on the table. Fabrizio has a wonderful way of getting you to put your "knowledge" out of the way and gets you cooking and learning both importance of ... more the basic ingredients and the history and above all else the passion for the good. He takes his time gauging your skill set and works from there. Impeccably polite, with a pleasantly subtle and very enjoyable sense of humour. The 4 hours were gone in an instant almost feeling like "really ? Already? We are finished?". I highly recommended Fabrizio and the next time we are back we will do the next "level" of lessons!!!!! Worth every penny and more!!!!
